RCOC operates with a budget in excess of: $100 million. Clearly, that's a lot of money. However, that money gets spent very quickly when you begin to make improvements on the second largest public road system in Michigan.
More than 10% of that money is from the Michigan Department of Transportation to be used only to take care of state highways in Oakland County. These funds cannot be used on county roads.
